Notice boards for dissemination of Laser Fence

Tags : 

Volterra has designed the notice boards which are a valuable tool to disseminate information about the project to indirect stakeholders and the wider public.

At five of the six trial sites the partners have placed a notice board with a description of the project in Spanish and English. Additionally, two project partners have placed a smaller sized copy (A3) of the notice board at their office in their respective working languages.

A pdf version of the notice boards is available through our download section.

Below you can see the installation of notice boards at our partners´ facilities and trial sites.

IRIS visits Bickley Hall Farm, in Malpas (England)

Tags : 

The IRIS team visited the second scheduled area on the trip to the UK, the Bickley Hall Farm, in Malpas, south of Liverpool.

On October 24, they met in the Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) with the project manager, Martin Sharp. After a productive meeting, in which part of the work was analysed and the following steps were planned, IRIS left Liverpool and went to Malpas.

On October 25, Jennifer Sneddon accompanied IRIS through Bickley Hall farm and explained them the work areas, the farm characteristics and the existing limitations.

During the day there were two flights (morning and afternoon). In each of them, the two parcels between which the laser is permutated were flown over. The limited opening and closing hours of the farm (09:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.), made it impossible to carry out flights before dawn and after sunset.

The flights were repeated the next day, this time in the company of Eduardo Cordova, employee of Liverpool John Moores University. All flights were carried out with maximum safety, reusing the flight criteria defined in Scotland.
